The Atlanta Dream have acquired 11-year veteran guard Danielle Robinson from the Indiana Fever in a trade that sent guard Kristy Wallace to Indiana, the organization announced today.
“Danielle’s skillset, competitiveness, and basketball IQ will prove her to be a great addition to our team. Her game speaks for itself, and we know she will continue to bring the same energy to the floor that she has brought throughout her entire professional career,” said Dream General Manager and Executive Vice President Dan Padover. “Danielle is the exact type of professional we want to bring into this organization, her leadership and experience will be a huge asset for our young talent as they continue to grow into the future of the Dream.”
